DESCRIBED BY COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY 1953 5.0 MI S FROM GILA BEND. 5.0 MILES SOUTH ALONG STATE HIGHWAY 85 FROM THE SOUTHERN PACIFIC COMPANY RAILROAD STATION AT GILA BEND, 0.1 MILE SOUTH OF TUCSON, CORNERLIA AND GILA BEND RAILROAD BRIDGE 52, 8 POLES SOUTH OF MILEPOLE 5, 96.1 FEET WEST OF THE WEST RAIL, 46 FEET EAST OF THE CENTER LINE OF THE HIGHWAY, 4 FEET NORTH OF AN IRON TELEPHONE POLE, 2.4 FEET SOUTH OF A WITNESS POST, ABOUT 2 HIGHER THAN THE HIGHWAY, AND SET IN THE TOP OF A CONCRETE POST PROJECTING 0.4 FOOT ABOVE THE GROUND.
01/01/1980 by NGS (GOOD)
RECOVERY NOTE BY NATIONAL GEODETIC SURVEY 1980 7.8 KM (4.85 MI) SOUTHWEST ALONG THE TUCSON, CORNELIA AND GILA BEND RAILWAY FROM THE MARTIN AVENUE CROSSING IN GILA BEND, 0.25 KM (0.15 MI) SOUTHWEST OF STATE HIGHWAY 85 MILEPOST 5, 0.2 KM (0.1 MI) SOUTHWEST OF RAILWAY BRIDGE NUMBER 52, 8 TELEGRAPH POLES SOUTHWEST OF RAILWAY MILEPOLE 5, 29.1 METERS (96.1 FT) NORTHWEST OF THE NORTHWEST RAIL OF THE TRACKS, 26.2 METERS (86.0 FT) SOUTHEAST OF THE CENTERLINE OF THE HIGHWAY, 1.5 METERS (5.0 FT) NORTHEAST OF AN IRON TELEGRAPH POLE, 0.3 METER (1.0 FT) SOUTHEAST OF THE SOUTHEAST RIGHT-OF-WAY FENCE.

Control Text

  • The horizontal coordinates were scaled from a topographic map and have an estimated accuracy of +/- 6 seconds.
  • The orthometric height was determined by differential leveling and adjusted by the National Geodetic Survey in June 1991.
  • The geoid height was determined by GEOID99.
  • The dynamic height is computed by dividing the NAVD 88 geopotential number by the normal gravity value computed on the Geodetic Reference System of 1980 (GRS 80) ellipsoid at 45 degrees latitude (G = 980.6199 gals.).
  • The modeled gravity was interpolated from observed gravity values.
